Not bad for a Monogram western
Having two US Marshals going under cover to find the real boss behind a gang of bank robbers gives scope for a fairly involved plot, especially because the two of them work semi-independently of each other. The cast were reasonably credible in their roles, with natural dialogue and actions. There was not as much action as in "typical" westerns—this film relied more on a convoluted story to carry it, which gave it more credibility, at least for me. Unfortunately, though, the poor print quality, with faded and blurry picture, mushy sound, and enough missing frames to disrupt dialogue in several places, made it difficult for me to follow some of the story. One star off, for that.
